7 facts about puppies 

Development Stages: Puppies go through several developmental stages in their first year, including the neonatal stage (0-2 weeks), transitional stage (2-4 weeks), socialization period (3-12 weeks), and juvenile period (3-6 months). 

Baby Teeth: Like human babies, puppies have baby teeth that start coming in around 3 weeks of age and are typically replaced by adult teeth by 6-7 months. 

Socialization Window: The critical socialization period for puppies is between 3-12 weeks of age. During this time, they learn social skills, how to interact with other animals and people, and what is safe or dangerous. 

Sense of Smell: Puppies are born blind and deaf but quickly develop a keen sense of smell within the first few weeks of life. Their sense of smell is significantly more developed than their other senses at birth.
